How To Send ‘Blind’ (Bcc) Messages

by TechnoGrannyAnni

in Email, You and Your Computer

You probably receive lots of circulated emails to pass forward; some are worth reading, but many are not.

If you do decide to forward them, for the sake of confidentiality, ALWAYS remove any ‘from’ addresses and then send to your recipients ‘blind’ (bcc).

No names or email addresses will show up when your message is opened.

You can also send emails ‘bcc’ when you want to send a message to someone, and copy another person, but you don’t want the main recipient to see the ‘copied’ person’s name.

To add the bcc line to all of your outbound emails
• Open a new email message, look along the top of your toolbar click on the ‘Options’ tab.
• Look along the bottom of the toolbar for the column called ‘Fields’.
• Click on ‘Show Bcc’.

To remove all previous recipients from a forwarded email
• Open the email.
• Click on the Message tab up on your email toolbar.
• Click on the ‘Forward’ command.
• Left click your mouse on one name or email address to highlight it.
• Right click on the highlighted email and choose ‘select all’ from the popup menu.
• Delete all highlighted names to clear the line.

To add bcc email addresses on your own forwarded emails
• In the ‘bcc’ line of your new email, add the addresses of those to whom you want to send the email.

You will see the names before you send the email, and your recipients will not.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about
if you added some great pictures or videos to give
your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site
could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
Very good blog!
